TAMPA, Fla. - Jan. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- Disabled American Veterans (http://www.dav.org) (DAV) will reach out to veterans and their families sharing its message of service and volunteerism in support of our nation’s combat-wounded men and women at the MacDill Air Force Base’s AirFest 2014 on March 22 & 23rd.

In the company of the iconic World War II era B-25 Mitchell Bomber, the DAV Flight Team will appear at AirFest 2014. The airshow is one stop on a nationwide tour that aims to increase public awareness of disabled veterans and provide information about DAV programs and benefits. The B-25, which gained notoriety in the famed Doolittle Raid over Tokyo, Japan 71 years ago, shares a modern-day mission with DAV -- reminding people of the sacrifices veterans make for freedom. As brave men and women return from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, the DAV’s services and advocacy are as relevant today as at any time in the nation’s history.

“The DAV is thrilled to bring our message of volunteerism and support to our nation’s sick and disabled veterans to this air show. We believe the men, women and children who will visit this air show are the patriotic, military-friendly citizens that have helped make this nation so great,” said DAV National Commander Joseph W. Johnston. “The DAV is proud to be among this crowd, and meet those who want to know more about our service to veterans.”

Disabled American Veterans, representing more than 1.2 million disabled veterans, is a non-profit organization founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932. It is dedicated to one, single purpose: Fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served.
